Palatin's net loss for the year ended June 30, 2010 was $1.8 million, or $(0.18) per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $4.8 million, or $(0.56) per basic and diluted share, for the year ended June 30, 2009.

The change in net losses for the year and quarter ended June 30, 2010 compared to the net loses for the year and quarter ended June 30, 2009 was primarily attributable to the varying amount of revenue recognized under Palatin's license and clinical trial agreements with AstraZeneca AB in the respective periods.

COSTS AND EXPENSES

For the year ended June 30, 2010, total operating expenses were $17.2 million compared to $18.7 million for the year ended June 30, 2009.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2010, total operating expenses were $4.9 million versus $4.5 million for the comparable quarter of 2009.
